What’s a musician should priorities in this day and age welcome to another informative episode of LnM ULwaz no Makhula Show we keep coming back and we hope you get better by a video that you watch our points are simple all you have to do is to understand them and connect the dots.

  • 1 Having quality music is the most important.

Maybe some points will be repeated but emphasizing this cannot be enough you see a song made in 2010 can be worth millions if it was left in a good condition or files were well kept , that means using quality mic and monitors to hear what’s you are doing if your producer doesn’t upgrade  you both need to be of blame but mostly the owner of the music ,artists has a tendency to leave anything to a producer even terrible songs you cannot fix that. So Priority even if you just starting out don’t spend your money on alcohol and drugs and thing someone should invest on your music you do that then see ladies later .Take your work seriously cause it will outlive you  and you don’t want to leave a legacy that won’t pay dividends to your family.

If you not moving up or down in life ,you going down.

  • 2 Having Music on the internet

It should be on the streets and on the internet and if you can even on TV and radio…we have expanded and made ourselves available on youtube because we play a long game. You can learn from other channels overseas but we are much better to you if we are local we speak the same language you can ask for consultation and direction. So the first thing we will do is to check your music online every demo and companies require your stuff to be online .Add to free platforms and paying ones you just don’t know when you going to blow up.

Big Zulu and Dj Swing.

Ever since Swing worked on Zulu’s 1st Album we have never heard anything from them ,Nkabi rapper is seemed to be hooked on a trap now and Swing has remained in his style thats made him who he is today ,We expecting his beats on Duncan Skuva Album ,Slogan Sekasi he was caught saying im no longer giving my beats away for free even his artists ,learn more about Swing as now focus on QGom as ULwaz No Makhula..Big Zulu on the other hand he is constanlty release hits singles.

  • 3 Getting paid

We tend to dismiss this point until it’s too late and we in too deep into our fear of asking for what’s we deserve .I heard that money is our livelihood well that can be repeated enough .You may not want money for your music because you have your own studio and you record for free your parent s pays the bills but that a bad trade because your parents will pass and you will have to look after yourself and maybe your siblings .Get your money right learn skills to ask for it be persistence and love people and don’t fear then ,read books on influencing psychology and know human nature because as artists we always deal with people some others has it in them to know how to fit in and place and interact with people like Makhula here ,you can call him a go getter he literally talk to people that most of us are scared of and ask. So you too listening or watching ask your shall receive if not the answer is default.

  • 4 Priorities your branding

From the name to the logo to the appearance to the consistency of your work and posts people should be familiar with your name and should be easy to be called look at the big brands and see what’s they have in common they set the trends that should be you, they do things 1st that should be all of us it’s called being innovative so we need that element in our music it should be the same thing all the time. Have things that go out in the form of marketing with your name and logo, alongside the posters, sponsor and get that value look apart don’t have a big gap between the perceived name and what’s actually appear. You are an artist your face should be familiar as much as your name , don’t lets your name go out there and hide your face ,there are certain pleasures you get just because people recognizes you of cause the paparazzi can be in your case as well but still they are working your behalf to make an awareness about you. Get attention than the rest is history be like a salesman and close people and get your money equivalent to your time worth and invest in your brand although the ROI won’t be instant

  1. Priorities being visible online posting This shouldn’t be all you do, I don’t know how I can say balance this but we can say have other things that are important during the day like a job that way you won’t binge face book and say ULwaz No Makhula suggested that. Post few times a day in every social and interact with people there if you can add some humor do that, don’t post links every time you show up. As ULwaz what’s I have developed because I want informative video on youtube ,the video I watch talk about money and sales and so on so I test all those on social media ,your twitter your face book and once you are in my what’s app you better get my beat as an artist or the music that you are doing lacks quality loll just kidding but yea in most cases we post about how we Progressing as ULwaz no Makhula every move we post and lately big things have been happening so we were able to build some true fans by our posts.

  • 6 Prioritize your contacts.

Who you know is important in this industry or in every industry they say your net work is your net worth meaning if you could raise money now how much can you get from people you know? That right as well as if you need an interview who can hook you up you need all that ,a Dj , a compiler , a plugger and a Pr or a promoter you need to be in contacts with this people and maintain these relationships no matter the stage in your music career. And I can add bringing people close is not  such a bad thing like having them, on your what’s app just answer them conveniently let not your life stop because of notifications Balance is the key. But a total stranger can hook you up on a gig just because they’ve been watching your status and lastly know people who are hustling they too will hook you up with what’s happening who you can talk to to get in. And pay attention to those who only take but not give….That it’s for today thanks for hanging out with us you can always come back if there is something missing or forgot… LnM Show we out here
